about

With her debut EP „Break Of Dawn“ the Berlin based Mieke Miami whet the appetite for the now available long player already last October. It's the beautiful morning serenade “Break of Dawn” itself which opens up this eleven track strong album named “In The Old Forest” ringing in springtime in a augustly levitating manner with Mieke's sugar-sweet voice. Thereafter the album's title track takes us by the hand buoyantly and leads us through this wondrous, old forest, which has a multitude of stories to tell. For instance one about a man without shoes (“UFO”), another one about a companionship with a tree (“The Owl”) or the one about a stroll along a sea full of memories (“Bantry Bay”). But most of all these tales recount this special feeling called summer (“August” and “Summer”). The whole LP spreads this subtle serenity which you only witness during this season of the year. Maybe except for “All Over “ and “Radioman”, two songs marching to some kind of a different drummer but in doing so add a pinch of variety in tone and style. Otherwise you could consider yourself to be strictly in the land of bliss by listening to this album.

The band supporting Mieke Miami (Carolina Bigge on drums, Thomas Stieger on bass and guitar and Johannes Saal on keys as well as guitar) creates a sound not only accentuating Mieke's sophisticated songwriting but stimulating it along the course. For instance, listen to “Fly”. This dreamy piece of pop with a musicall well-versed foundation – from the songwriting to the orchestration and of course the lyrics. In short, “In The Old Forest” simply makes you happy, even on days less warm and less summery.

Track Name: Break Of Dawn
when the lights are low
old rivers glow
rolling back in time
through the night they shine
 
ride on
 
Go
 
to the end of dawn
until the sun is rising
 
 
flow on grow on
flow on grow on
flow on grow on
flow on grow on
 
 
moonlight´s sparkling shine
nightingales are cryin´
wandring hand in hand
dpwn to wonderland
 
walk on
 
go
 
to the break of dawn
into the sun we´re diving
 
gold waves bright shine
a stream divine
wanderers we
into the sea
Track Name: In The Old Forest
In the old forest
close by the seafront
raindrops fall on treetops
the oaks sing their old songs
 
Like a crew of rusty sailors
with hearts carved on their barks
telling silent stories
of love that fell apart
 
It´s been raining for a whole month
the wind tears at brown leaves
whispering a farewell
to fading memories
 
Then one night the rain
turned into some dancing snowflakes
Then one night the rain
turned into some dancing snowflakes
 
In the old forest
In the old forest
In the old forest
In the old forest
 
 
In the old forest
the snow covers all scars
innocence and beauty
as long as it lasts
Track Name: UFO
On a corn eld in South Carolina
at midnight
stands a man with no shoes on his feet and feels alright
in the distance the thunders roll
but the man with no shoes hears the angels sing
UFOs
wandering across the skies
UFOs
they are coming to take you home again
UFOs
through the silence, the sinlence, the silence, the silence of the space across the galaxy
UFOs
the UFOs will come and take you to space
On a corn eld in South Carolina
the young man leaves behind all his troubles and feels alright
In the distance he sees a light
like a wink from a star and it shines so bright
UFOs UFOs UFOs
Track Name: Shine
Shine when the darkness falls
shine in the night
shine when the devil drags you down shine a light
Shine when the darkness falls
shine in the night
shine when the devil grabs your soul shine a light
Shine when the darkness falls
shine in the night
shine when the devil grabs your soul shine a light
Shine when the darkness falls shine in the night
shine when the devil calls shine a light
Shine when the darkness falls shine in the night
shine when the devil calls shine a light
Track Name: Summer
Walking home early in the morning with a song in my head watch the sun rise in the east where the sky turns red
There ́s a sweet and green scent of grass in the air Children ́s laughter, daphodils and lilacs everywhere
Girls in skirts on bicycles are riding up and down the street And I ́m waiting at the corner where we used to meet
In the summer
In the summer time
Track Name: Fly
Every night the bear awakes his heart beats
he lifts his gaze up to the sky with longing in his eyes
He can see the milky way the planets
when he falls asleep at day he dreams he
Flies
Fly away Fly!
When he climbs upon the hill his soul cries
wants to leave it all behind the trouble and the woe
As he dives into the clouds
there ́s stillness
a hundred tears come to his eyes because he
Flies
Fly away Fly!
Track Name: The Owl
The Owl
deep in the woods behind the stream lives in a dream
Her home
the safest place
that ́s where she stays day after day
Mmmmhhhhh....( s, a, d) Mmmmhhhhh....
The world
keeps spinning round keeps spinning
the world
keeps spinning round
The rain keep falling down keeps falling
the rain
keeps falling down
I ́,m looking at a tree
The tree looks back at me
I ́m looking at a tree Tree looks back at me-he
Du-du-du-dudududu-du-duuu....
Track Name: Bantry Bay
„Who is turning the world so fast?
Evry moment becomes the past“,
he thought when he was walking to the ocean
Rolling thunder an rising stars, crying babies and racing cars
He saw all those things that he will remember And now it ́s sleeping time
Twilight ends and the night unfolds As the cold air creeps under his coat he is turning up his collar
Roaring airplanes up in the sky and the love in his mother ́s eyes
In the nighttime the silence of the mountains And now it ́s sleeping time
Track Name: All Over
All Over All Over All Over
All Over
and over again
I wanna kiss you all over over and over again
I wanna kiss you all over over and over again
I hear your voice on the telephone
I wonder where have you been
Oh I can ́t wait till the evening comes cause kissing you is just like a dream
Uuhuuhuu Uuhuuhuu
All Over All Over All Over
All Over
and over again
Track Name: August
On a day in late september
we took a trip out to the lake
 
As I turned and looked at you a
thousand memories float into my mind
And the water of the lake, it seemed so clear
 
Sunny times and happy days, sunny times in august
never thought the day would come when
the wind is cold
Happy days an sunny times, sunny times in august
Never thought that there would be
winter
Track Name: Radioman
He always listenes to his favourite program on the radio
transmitting airwaves through the country and the darkness of the land
The world is far away, far away, far away, so far away He tunes in evry day, evry day, evry day, every day
A voice is ying through the storm into the rusteling tiny kitchen radio Inside the tatter of a harp, outside the sound of pouring rain
They play his favourite song, favourite song, favourite song, his favourite song And he sings along, sings along, sings along, the whole night long
Radio, radio, radio, radio radioman...
The world ́s at rest and through the windows of his cabin glints a light and through the vastness of the elds you hear him sing his melody
He ́s rocking to the beat, he nods his head and ten he claps his hands He ́s getting on his feet, he feels so ne and tries a little dance
Radio, radio...
Turn on your radio, radioman
